Greetings my Marvelous Marvel maniacs, we are here and its April 1st but it’s no time for fooling around as there are plenty of new first issues launching this month for some sure to be exciting series. Before we get started did you see that trailer for the upcoming “Spider-Man: Homecoming” movie? I posted it on THIS LINK so please check it out if you haven’t yet and let us know what you thought in the posts comments. Now back to the news at hand. As in previous posts I’m sharing the provided copy from the Bullpen itself along with images for these new launches and almost every single issue has multiple variant covers. Remember that there are scores of other concurrently running titles but we’re only focusing on the firsts (and occasional seconds) with this posting. Here we go.
Black Panther: The Crew #1: Black Panther, Storm, Luke Cage, Misty Knight and Manifold band together to take on a dangerous wave of street-level threats in this new ongoing series by co-writers Ta-Nehisi Coates (New York Times best-selling author of Between the World and Me and Marvel’s Black Panther) and Yona Harvey (Black Panther: World of Wakanda) and legendary artist Butch Guice! The death of a Harlem activist kicks off a mystery that will reveal surprising new secrets about the Marvel Universe’s past and set the stage for a big story in the Marvel Universe’s near future. Fear, hate and violence loom, but don’t worry, The Crew’s got this: “We are the streets.”

X-Men Blue #1: Join MARVEL GIRL, CYCLOPS, BEAST, ICEMAN and ANGEL as they reclaim the title of X-MEN. After the world-shaking events of IVX, the original five X-Men are here to bring mutant criminals to justice and restore a heroic sheen to their team. But with a new leader in JEAN GREY and a new mentor in their “arch-frenemy” MAGNETO, will old rivalries and new conflicts tear these heroes apart?
